Lilou Mace is in Amsterdam with Pim van Lommel, author of Consciousness Beyond Life. As a cardiologist, Dr. Lommel encountered many patients who survived cardiac arrest. In these moments, many of them remembered events that took place while their EEGs were flat lined. This phenomenon intrigued Dr. Lommel enough to begin his own investigations into the Near Death Experiences.
In their poignant discussion, Dr. Lommel explains how people’s lives have changed after an NDE. He also offers an explanation of non-local consciousness and the role of the brain. There are still more questions than answers. What is taught at university is turning out to be wrong when compared to what is really happening. However, the medical community, at large in the western world, is becoming more open and accepting of patients’ accounts of NDEs.
